European specialty stores

I prepared a list of stores I am familiar with and posted it on my blog. Even though my post was centered around the Pork Sausage - Kielbasa - these stores sell all kinds of imported goodies. Here is the link: http://suburbangrandma.com/culture/kobasakovbasakielbasakobasykobasi-where-to-find-it/

Eastern European Deli/Meats #3

State Meats 5338 State Rd. Parma, OH 44134 216.398.0183 Fax 216.398.0204 Nice Kielbasa and other sausages; lunch meats, pierogi, bakery, fish, smoked ham hocks, and some fresh meats. Also cheeses and various home-made products. Some selection of grocery items. Decidedly Ukrainian, very good products.

Eastern European Deli/Meats #2

Krakow Foods 5767 Ridge Rd. Parma, OH 44129 440.292.0357 (web site "under construction") Nice selection of "varietal" Kielbasa; great Kielbasa Krakowa, which is a wonderful lunchmeat, amongst others; good smoked cheese. They also have Paczki every Friday and Saturday, but get there early, because when they are gone, they're gone...also various other baked goods (changes often). They have a nice little selection of imported Polish grocery items (anything from flour, to pickles, to Polish Jams and juices...too numerous to list here...take the time to check it out). They apparently will also do deli meat/cheese trays, if ordered ahead. Nice little place. It is your basic old-world Polish family-run place, which means that variety is king, and the offerings always change
